Three Norman knights, with spears held high, race toward the attack. The Norman archers are now shown in full force. The archers won the day, using a strategy that finally broke the ‘shield wall’. ‘Ballista’ was the term used to describe any kind of weapon that fired a missile. This term may well have been used as a title given to a bowman or a crossbowman. Nicholas Balistarius also went by the name of ‘de la Pole’. Nicholas was rewarded for his services with lands in Warwickshire. Odo Balistarius received lands in Yorkshire. Both Gilbert and Berner Balistarius held lands in East Anglia and Fulchere Balistarius received land in Devon.
